    Depending on your motherboard it would be pressing the delete key to enter bios setup[most manufacturers] or an F1-F12 key. You really need to know rgw manufacturer of the motherboard to get a clear answer.

Hi,
First you see whether the fan on the CPU is running or not, if not change it and you will get a paste to which you have to apply between the heat sink and the processor.  This is your external work.
Second thing, As you want to find the BIOS setup, there are 2 ways  1. Reboot you pc on the POST screen you find the right key to get inside the BIOS setup.
2. To my knowledge it should be either "DEL" key or "F2" key. Keep pressing either of these keyes for 4 to 5 times, you will get into the BIOS. There you should get into the "PC health status".
Once you get into "PC Health Status", your  "system Temp" should be between 22^ C to 28^ C and CPU Temp should be around 33^C to 36^ C If you find the rating been more than this then its time to change the Heat sink of the processor.
Once you are through this work your PC starts working properly.
Have a nice day.....!@

My PC's Fan has a loud humming sound every time I boot up PC, how do I fix that?


Hi.

As Dean said, if the humming noise is always present even with the fan spinning at low RPM, replace it. If it's only loud when booting it might be normal ; some computer's BIOS spin the fan very fast when booting and when the Operating system or preset parameters take over, they gradually lower the speed. By the way, unplug the fans one at a time to find which one is causing the noise. If it is a case fan they cost only a few bucks, if it is the CPU fan it is a bit more expensive but aftermarket cooler can be found for around 20$. If you need to replace the CPU cooler, make sure you clean the old thermal paste and apply some fresh one. For a tutorial how Youtube is your best friends ;)

What is the possible problem when your computer is automatic shutdown while using?


A number of things - all bad.
If I were betting on problems I've experienced, I'd be betting on reasons #5, #6 (memory), or
reason #8 (overheating due to failing fan), unless its reason #3 (virus).

(1) you laptop (if you have a laptop) battery is dying, and the system is hibernating in response to the low power indication.
(2) your computer's "Standby" button is being accidentally pressed (or the button has failed), and the computer is going into "Standby mode" since it thinks that the "Standby" button has just been pressed.
(3) a virus/worm/Trojan horse/spyware or other malware infecting your system can cause a system restart. While your computer is actually up, run an anti-virus scan and let it run until the system
shuts itself down, and keep running these anti-virus scans until it finds something, or the scan
finally runs to completion. Only when malware is eliminated as the cause of your system shutdowns can you proceed to address any other cause(s) of random system restarts/shutdowns.
(4) You're accidentally pressing the system "Reset" or "Power off" button (if you system is a tower).
(5) Your computer has developed a memory error in the area of RAM where the kernel is resident.
(6) Your computer has developed a memory error in the area of RAM where the ROM BIOS is loaded.
In the case of #5, or #6 perform an in-depth system memory diagnostic using your system's
ROM BIOS resident diagnostics. Access these diagnostic programs by entering SETUP while
your system is booting - usually by holding down F2 (or other system-specific function key) while the system is booting.
(7) Other software problem(s)
In this case, boot your system (and use it for awhile) in SAFE MODE. Safe mode is selected by holding down F8 (or other system specific function key). If you system does not randomly restart while in safe mode, then you have a software problem causing the restarts when in "nonSafe mode"

For Windows XP users

Windows XP is designed to automatically reboot each time an error occurs such as a BSoD (Blue Screen of Death). Although this may be nice for errors that do not occur often, users who have a re-occurring error may wish to identify the error to troubleshoot it. Below are the steps on how this feature can be disabled and enabled in Windows XP.

1. From the desktop right-click on My Computer.
2. Click the Properties option.
3. In the System Properties window click the Advanced tab.
4. In Advanced click the Settings button under Startup and Recovery.
5. In the Startup and Recovery window uncheck the Automatically restart check box.
6. Click Ok.

Now if the computer generates an error it should not automatically restart and enable you to display any errors your computer may be experiencing.

(8) Possible Heat related issue

Many computers today are designed to turn off or automatically reboot if the computer, processor, or other device in your computer gets too hot. If you have heard any abnormal noises coming from your computer recently such as a high squealing this could indicate a fan may be failing in your computer. If the CPU fan is starting to fail, the motherboard will shutdown the PC when the CPU
temperature exceeds a CMOS-set threshold, which protects the CPU from a thermal meltdown.

First, verify the fan on the power supply is working by examining the back of the computer and see if the fan is moving and moving smoothly. For all other fans in the computer (e.g. CPU fan and/or
a tower case fan (if you system has one)) you will need to either open the computer and visually verify that all fans are working.

If your BIOS monitors the RPM of the fans enter CMOS Setup and verify it does not report any errors.

(9) Issue with the operating system (operating system bug)

If after following each of the above recommendations your computer still continues to reboot it is likely that you are experiencing a Microsoft Windows operating system related issue (an operating system bug). To help make sure this is the case try the below steps.

1. Reboot the computer and enter CMOS setup as the computer is booting.
2. After you have loaded the computer in CMOS setup let the computer sit for a long time.

If the computer does not reboot while letting the computer sit in CMOS it is likely that you are in fact experiencing an issue with Microsoft Windows and it is recommend that if you have followed all of the above recommendations that you reinstall Microsoft Windows - or, since you're running
WinXP Service Pack 2, you may want to simply install (free) Service pack 3 and/or Service Pack 4,
and see if that resolves the operating system bug issue. Note that Windows XP SP2 is a particularly stable version of Windows, and it is unlikely that your "random restart" issue is going to be an operating system bug.

Hi.

Fisrt of all remove the 2 external hard drives from the computer, boot the computer up and see if it still hangs on the post information screen.
If it doesn't then the BIOS has a problem detecting the externals thus why its hanging on the BIOS.

If it still hangs try to completely reset the BIOS either by putting the plastic jumper in the "on" possition and turning the computer on. The jumper is located to the left hand side of the "Front Header" (power switch, reset etc) or remove the power cord from the rear of the computer and then take out the motherboard battery and leave it out for 20 minutes.

That should clear the CMOS and reset the BIOS and stop it hanging on the post screen. Remember that once you have done this you will need to set the date and time.



Regards.

WHEN I START MY PC MY CPU FAN TURNS ON AUTOMATICALLY


Some models are designed this way. Other boards will increase the fan as the processor gets hotter. I would recommend leaving the fan always running as fast as possible. Processors and other components in your PC put out a lot of heat, and heat is your enemy, shortening the life of your pc.

Computer restarts randomly with blue screen. How can I fix it?


Find the root of the problem by analysing the previous BSOD crashes. Its probably a hardware related issus (graphics driver or USB).

You need to enable the Memory Dump feature. This can be analysed when the system restarts to find out the root cause.
